Candice Malcolm: The new feminism is a twisted ideology

Following the inauguration of U.S. President Donald Trump, opposition activists organized large rallies in major cities across North America. Dubbed the ‘Women’s March,’ these rallies consisted mostly of liberal and left-wing activists promoting their own political agenda.

Millions of women attended, millions more stayed at home.

Feminism isn’t for everyone, and modern feminism is no longer an inclusive movement to protect and improve the lives of all women.

New feminism has morphed into an anti-Western, anti-conservative ideology. It aims to undermine men—especially straight, white men—and fight against “the patriarchy,” that is, the traditional institutions of society, like the family, marriage, religion and even the economy.

New feminism was on full display at these marches, including a very telling incident that occurred in Edmonton.

Sheila Gunn Reid, a reporter with the Rebel Media, a conservative online news organization (where I also contribute from time to time), had a run-in with an angry protester.

With her camera rolling, Reid can be seen in the crowd trying to conduct interviews. An indignant man, later identified as Dion Bews, can be seen swearing and telling her to leave.

The reporter, of course, had every right to be at the public rally, and had every right to film those in attendance. There is no such thing as the right to privacy while attending a public march on public grounds.

The angry man threatens to break the camera, and, a second later, his fist is out, up and can be seen swinging into the camera lens.

Just let that sink in. A female journalist, trying to do her job, appears to be assaulted by a male at a women’s rally. All caught on a remarkable, albeit disturbing, video.

Edmonton police investigated and have since charged Bews, 34, with assault and uttering threats.

Imagine the uproar from the feminists in attendance. A man reacts violently to a woman for doing her job.

But no, there was no uproar. No one came to Reid’s aid. Instead, several women stepped in to defend the man, helping usher him away and into hiding.

One female attendee, trying to de-escalate the situation, told Reid to calm down, while another feminist can be seen shouting at Reid, telling her she is “the problem.”

Blaming the victim is exactly...(READ MORE)
